Looks good to me.
Ok, will push.
I wonder whether there is a compiler-dependent way of avoiding the union
trick ... or maybe gcc is already smart enough that it doesn't matter?
It seems to compile into a single instruction, so it can't get any
better from a performance point of view.
.loc 1 871 0
.loc 2 733 0
movsd 40(%rdi), %xmm2
movsd 32(%rdi), %xmm1
A union is probably what language pedantics would prefer anyway, and
anything else would be more of a trick.
